re: Saddle appraisal - pointdog33
Unless it is some sort of custom made saddle with special tooling, it's probably only worth $1200-1500 range. Those saddles brand new only run in the $1700 range. ...

[quote]we might shoot with them due to logistics.[/quote] They can enroll/participate in the parish in which they reside or go to school in. If you enroll in LP but want to shoot with AP for practice, you need to contact their coaches/agents to let them know. It isn't uncommon, but it can cau...

re: 4-H Shooting Programs - pointdog33
The 4-H Program is a part of the LSU AgCenter, they don't play around when it comes to safety and risk management. There's too much at stake. To my knowledge, there has never been an accident reported with the 4-H Shooting Sports Program nationally. ...

re: 4-H Shooting Programs - pointdog33

It is very focused on safety and proper technique. I'm not sure about the rifle side, but for shotgun they make every kid go t...

re: What are these fields for that are south of Alex Box? - pointdog33
They moved all Dairy research to the southeast research station and kept just a few head for some classes. The only research farms available for students now are on Ben Hur. It really is a shame to see the dismantling of the agricultural programs at LSU. ...

re: About 200 acres of land acquired for River Ranch-style development in Zachary - pointdog33

re: So I went to the County Fair and lost all hope in humanity - pointdog33
Fairs around the country aren't what they once were due to the population shift from agrarian to urban. Fairs were setup to showcase skills of the populace whether that was growing produce, livestock, cooking, or other home economist skills. They were also used to introduce new technologies in t...

The safety switches on mahindras fail miserably and are a bitch to get to. I've by-passed the clutch and accelerator switches on mine. There is a reason they are cheaper because they are made cheaper. ...

[quote] Then you know you can't just say Weimaraner because those are grey. [/quote] The kennel they were traced to also bred weimaraners, but for your arguments sake, yes they could have used any of the dilution gene breeds to breed it in. Breeding in a color trait is very easy to do. Almos...

re: Silver Lab pups - pointdog33
I know genetics pretty well and how it all works. I've seen the documented spot mutations in genomes in animals. The Quarter horse stallion Impressive is a really interesting one where a gene mutated in him that gave rise to a whole new phenotype in muscling. It also led to a whole new genetic di...
